Honda Prospect Motor (Honda Indonesia) has compiled a video that briefs on the design, technology and features of the Honda Mobilio which launched in the archipelago last week. The video is in Indonesian, but there’s nothing one can’t understand of the light MPV watching the visuals.

Features explained in the video include tilt steering, audio system with CD, Aux and USB ports, double blower aircon, one touch tumble seat, Eco Meter, 1.5L i-VTEC engine matched to a CVT gearbox, 5.2m turning radius, electric power steering, dual SRS airbag, ABS+EBD, and an accessory pack.
The Mobilio for India will be revealed at the 2014 Auto Expo (starts on Feb 5 in Greater Noida) and the important change for the local market is the addition of a 1.5L EarthDreams diesel engine that achieves record fuel efficiency on the Amaze and new City. This engine would pair to the 5-speed manual transmission, while the 6-speed MT is also worth considering an MPV is a highway/long-distance vehicle in India. Whether Honda India will offer the CVT option for the petrol Mobilio is not confirmed.
The Indonesian Mobilio comes in three variants – S, E, and E-Prestige – with prices starting at 159,500 rupiah (8.19 lakh rupees).
